Peggy's wild child daughter LaVonda (Ann Walker) lives with Peggy's chain-smoking sister Sissy (Beth Grant), while Peggy's good girl Latrelle (Bonnie Bedelia) maintains an image of seeming perfection. Peggy's third child "Brother Boy" Ingram (Leslie Jordan) is locked in a mental institution where he performs as Tammy Wynette. He plots to escape while he attends therapy sessions with the crazy Dr. Eve (Rosemary Alexander) who believes she can dehomosexualize him.
LaVonda's white trash best friend Noleta (Caroline Rhea) lives in a trailer in Sissy's backyard with her husband G.W. (David Steen), a Vietnam vet with two wooden legs. G.W. escapes regularly to the local bar in town amidst a small crowd of regulars including brothers Wardell (Newell Alexander) and Odell (David Cowgill), Bitsy and this bar's crazy old fly Juanita (Sarah Hunley).
Latrelle's son Ty (Jason Dottley) is an actor living in Los Angeles and struggling with several therapists (Margaret Cho, Carson Kressley, Candis Cayne) to come to terms with his homosexuality. Along the way he deals with his first boyfriend (Ted Detwiler), his stalker ex-girlfriend (Sharron Alexis), a vengeful trick (Emerson Collins) and the difficulty of coming out to his straight best friend (Robert Lewis Stephenson) and his family back in Texas.
Sordid Lives is the universally relatable story of a town of family and friends and the trials and tribulations they go through as they learn to see each other for who they are instead of who they wish each other to be.

Let me ease everyone's minds and say the set doesn't have any of those problems. Everything is spot-on and looks much better than the compressed version fed via cable. I've been through all the extras and there are no hiccups in playback.
That said, there's not much about extras included in the details section for the set. The first 2 discs are the 12 Episodes plus photos. The episodes are uncensored both in audio and video, so you hear a lot more and see just a little bit more. Definitely starting with Episode 3, the show started reaching beyond standard cable shows for content, especially with the infamous "Call Waiting" episode. You get to hear beyond "Beep, Beep, Beep" and it much more enjoyable.
The third disc includes the series teaser trailer, bloopers, deleted scenes and music done by Olivia Newton-John. The bloopers really are extensive and very funny. I had a blast watching them especially when one of the cast members would get the giggles and just had to get through it. The trailer is something you could already see on the internet or could have seen prior to the series making it onto TV. Olivia's music is great and a nice addition. I found the deleted scenes, while extensive, were mostly deleted for a reason. There were a few gems inside there, but most were extensions of already-existing scenes or additional before/after content that didn't add too much to the story. I'm sure that's why they were deleted. It was nice to have that as well although more bloopers would have been nice.Read more ›
If you are as angry about the cancellation of the series as I am, write to LOGO and voice your opinion!
Two key cast member changes helped contribute a lot to Del's new concept. First, don't ever let it be said I'm not a long time Delta Burke fan. However, casting Caroline Rae in Delta's part as Noleta was a stroke of brillance. Secondly, contrary to some opinion, I think Jason Dottley- Del Shores' real life husband- playing Ty was a big bonus move also. I always thought Kirk Geiger (movie Ty) looked too old for the part, not that great an actor, and never convinced me he was the "confused" Ty that he was trying to convey in the movie. Jason adds a dimension to Ty that is more vulnerable, scared, sweet, confused, and searching for what he what he wants and who he is on a much more satisfying level to me. Bravo Jason! And THANK YOU Beth, Bonnie, Olivia, Rosemary, and Leslie for coming back to do the series! A very special thank you goes to Rue McClanhan for joining the cast this season.
Yes, I became obsesesed with the show week after week. You come to love all the characters- even the ones you "hate." The dialogue is crisp, funny, intelligent, irrelevant, and why we all sit down to watch a TV series so we can escape the escapades and drama of our own sordid lives. Each episode became a "water cooler" conversation with my friends with every new episode.
TOO many memorable lines to recite: "Bam! Bam! Bam!" "What'd I miss?" "And pussy is spelled with two 'S''s!" "... but I've never lost consciousness before noon.Read more ›
